The Emperor Wu Temple Jar is a traditional Chinese porcelain classic. This one is emblazoned with a luscious peony pattern.
Emperor Wu was one of the greatest rulers in Chinese history. It is only right that pottery made long after his reign bears his name. As a ruler, he allowed Chinese arts to flourish in relative peace and safety.
The hand-painted blue peony pattern takes inspiration from Mongolian religious designs, where the colour blue was particularly revered. The design also takes influences from other cultures on China's periphery, such as the northern Turkic tribes, Tibet and Persia.
As for styling this piece, it’s a versatile one. It would look fantastic displaying an arrangement of dried flowers, but equally, it looks amazing just with the lid on. We suggest you try it in a few different places around the house!
